PLEASE READ. Complex immigration case. Any answers/feedback GREATLY appreciated.

I have a really weird case. Here is some basic info.

I (F) am 23 and have lived in the US since I was a newborn. I have Canadian citizenship but was born in Ireland. My mother traveled from Ukraine (where my bio dad lives) when I was a newborn (I cannot make this up. Why did she travel so much) with me and we legally entered the US. She has a green card but never got her citizenship. For some (shitty) reason she never took any action for my status in the US. I have a social security number that obviously isn’t valid for work. Apparently my mother had started filing for my legal status when I was a baby but never followed through. ( how I have a SS #) When I was 16 my aunt found out about my status issue and helped me pay for all of the fees to start a USCIS case stemming from my mother. We were ill-informed and honestly had no idea what we were doing. I was a teenager basically filling out these forms on my own from google searches because we could not afford a lawyer. We got to the interview point and at the interview my mother basically showed up because she had to. The officer asks for my passport (the only one I’ve ever had) and I had to tell him about it getting lost during a move years ago. I know it exists and I’ve seen it myself many times, my mother just stupidly misplaced it. We present my mother’s passport from the same timeline we gave with the stamps from entering the US. he leaves and and a manager of some sort comes in and asks the same thing. After the interview I get a letter of denial. I was so discouraged as a teenager and didn’t know what to do that I just let it sit. Now I am 23 and feel useless in life because I cannot do ANYTHING. work/school, etc. my fiancĂ© proposed to me 8 months ago and I just started reading it could be possible for me to get a green card once we get married. However I think the issue is I don’t have proof of my lawful entry as a baby. So my main questions are: 1. Is it possible for me to get a green card if we get married? 2. Am I able to somehow obtain passport records? 3. Will my past denied case affect my new case if I choose to start one? I plan on getting a lawyer and doing whatever it takes but I wanted to come here until I do. Thank you for your time if you have made it this far. I have yet to find any kind of case similar to mine and I have no idea what I’m doing. It’s really starting to impact my mental health and I just need to find some kind of answers to keep my sanity.

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
